  • Community steps up again sending food, clothing to Smoky Mountain communities

    Carroll County is a community that responds to the call for help as recently witnessed by the support of the flooded areas of West Virginia and the water quality crisis in Flint, Mich.

    The community is stepping up again in wake of the fires in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park that have affected locations that hold memories for many local folks. Hurricane force winds started a fire storm that quickly moved from Chimney Top toward the communities of Gatlinburg, Tenn. and Pigeon Forge, Tenn., forcing the evacuation of Gatlinburg.

  • Red Cross urges donors to give perfect gift this winter

    The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give the perfect gift this holiday season – a lifesaving blood or platelet donation. By rolling up a sleeve, donors can help ensure patients continue to receive treatment throughout the holiday season.

    Busy holiday schedules and travel plans make it more challenging for regular donors to give, and many businesses and organizations postpone hosting blood drives during the holiday season for these same reasons. This can lead to a decline in blood donations, but the need is constant.
